My light carry is a Colt model 1908 vest pocket 25 ACP made in 1911. An old goose gun from the teens and then some from the 1940's, 50's, 80's and then some newer ones.

Couple more revolvers from the 1970's.

Newest is a Heritage 22lr revolver from 2014.
That info is out there, have to dig a little. I was able to date my top-break US Revolver Co (made by Iver Johnson) with a little research. It wasn't all on one site, a little here, a little there.

My son wants a 1908 vest pocket.
Is ammo hard to find or expensive?
Do they make a .22 conversion kit if so?

He's 11 next month, and that's his favorite gun. he wants pearl grips

Such as:

Six of my guns are older than me (I'm 59).
The average age of all my guns is 48 years old. (52 if you count the wall-hanger)
The three newest are 3, 13, and 13 years old.
The rest are 30+ years old.
The three oldest are 97, 105, and 118 years old.
I bought my first gun brand new, and it's 45 years old (Funny, it doesn't SEEM that long ago!)
Pretty neat way to look at your guns. The one I like best is the one you bought first in life.

All mine are younger than I, except for the ones that I got from Grandpa. The Winchester Model 1892 turned 104 this year and the Remington Model 41 Targetmaster was made in 1937.

My oldest is a custom 98 Mauser in 257 Roberts with a 1918 date on the receiver, but actually rebarreled and restocked in 1948. My newest purchased a month ago is Remington 700.
